Planet Janice Films San Francisco LGBT Pride and Frameline
proudly presents
PeaceOUT:The 6th Annual World HomoHop Festival
September 23-24, 2006
at The San Francisco LGBT Community Center
and 21 GRAND.


What is PeaceOUT?
PeaceOUT is an international gathering of lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender hip-hop artists, activists, fans and supporters to
celebrate the LGBT presence in hip-hop music and culture, hosted and
produced by Sugartruck Recordings in conjunction with Frameline and San Francisco LGBT Pride. The festival will take place over the weekend of September 23-24 in San Francisco and Oakland, California and will feature live music, DJs, spoken word, dance/performance events.

The first PeaceOUT World Homo Hop Festival (Then known as Cypher) was
held in August 2001 at Oakland's East Bay Pride and has become an annual
tradition. Its popularity enabled the creation of the upcoming 3rd Annual
PeaceOutEast (NYC October 15-16,2006) The 2nd annual PeaceOUT UK (October 20,2006)and the biannual PeaceOUTSouth ( Atlanta,Georgia).

PeaceOUT 6 is proud to feature a FREE, all ages screening of the Planet Janice Films documentary "Pick Up The Mic" at the San Francisco LGBT Community Center. ”Pick Up The Mic” premiered at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival and has since screened at 20+ festivals internationally,making its San Francisco premiere at Frameline 30 (June,2006)and winning the Best Soundtrack Award at OutFest (Los Angeles)in July,2006.
The screening is made possible though a partnership between Frameline, The San Francisco LGBT Community Center, and San Francisco LGBT Pride.

A number of LGBT hip-hop performers are listed on the Phat Family
Records and Sugartruck Recordings homepages. Most of them have their own
websites with photos, MP3s and CDs available for sale. Many any of them
have appeared on one or more Phat Family Records CD compilations. Please
visit http://www.phatfamily.org and http://www.sugartruckrecordings.com
for more info. All news and updates will be announced on the Phat Family
Announcements mailing list and Kitchen Sink’s monthly e-newsletter.
